Watch: Viral Video Shows Brave Bystander Stopping Apparent Racist Attack on Women Speaking Spanish

A young woman in a Rifle, Colorado grocery store intervened in what appears to be a racist attack on two other young women who were speaking Spanish.


"I'm calling the cops. You leave these women alone! Get out!" Kamira Trent yelled at Linda Dwire inside the City Market grocery store, as The Hill reports.

"You come from a generation that's destroying this country," Dwire accused, pointing her finger repeatedly at Trent.

"No I do not. I have respect. You do not harass people," Trent responded.

"You will lose your country," Dwire continued. "You know what, you will lose this country."

"You do not harass Hispanic women!" Trent yelled back.

The video has been video on Facebook nearly 700,000 times since Monday.
